Bird quilt for Avicultural Society

This quilt was made specifically for the Avicultural Society of Australia, to raffle at their Convention Dinner in September.  We hadn't planned on going to the dinner, but have now booked in to go, as I am interested to see who wins the raffle, and will be buying tickets myself in the hope of winning it, lol!  I am really pleased with it, and of course I can always make another one, as I still have the bird photos on file, and it was easy enough to print them on to those inkjet fabric sheets (the person who invented those deserves a medal). I still have to put the label on the back, naming the photographer who allowed me to use his photos, and my name as the quilt maker.
I showed the quilt to the Society meeting this week, and got a very positive response from the members.  The editor of their magazine took photos and is going to publish them in the next issue.  Five minutes of fame, lol!
